In today’s post, I’m going to address a question I get quite a few e-mails about and see in a lot of internet marketing forums. Lots of people who are struggling to make ends meet want to know if it’s possible to make money online in 2014 without spending any. I’m going to tell you what I think on my personal experience and how I started out early in my online career and give you my recommendation as well.
When I first started out making money online, one of the first things I did was making money by publishing articles to free sites and getting paid via Paypal either based on the number of views the article got, a flat rate per article, or a combination of both. While it is still possible to do this today in 2014, it comes with several down sides. First of all, many of the sites pay you “dirt cheap.” When I say “dirt cheap,” I’m talking about $3 USD per 400+ word count article or possibly less.
You also have to keep in mind that you might have to do some research in order to write the article (takes time), have to wait for the article to get approved, and meet certain payment thresholds (can take weeks or months, depending on how much time you have to devote to it). Once you go through this process a couple of times, you soon come to realize that the pay is so little, it’s spent by the time you get it, and that sites like these are best for those who don’t live in the U.S. and stuff.
Instead, here’s what I recommend. If you like to write or need to get paid ASAP, I recommend that you start your own ghostwriting business, so that you can charge more money. Rather than getting $3 per article, you can charge $10 (the standard for beginners) and up (can double once you get more experience under your belt). It’s important to note that you’ll still be able to get paid via Paypal as well. You’ll also have more freedom because you can also do things like run specials when you need some major cash and use this method whenever you need money. Click the link below to learn more.
